Jason's Story:

Raised in a home where his father was abusive, by the age of nine, Jason had become suicidal. With his mother diagnosed with Lupus and his brother on a downward spiral of drug and alcohol abuse, Jason bought into the lie that his own life was worth nothing. Out of desperation, he took his mother’s handgun to try and kill himself. With the choice of life and death in his hands, Jason realised he had to look beyond his circumstances and realise his life was for a purpose greater than he would ever know.

Several years ago Jason Maupin started Elevate Industries, a motivational assembly program designed to help students make right choices. Having the chance to speak literally around the world to schools, camps, conventions and churches Jason takes every opportunity to help students realise their full potential. From his humour, to his compelling story-telling Jason takes his audience on an adventure that leaves them wanting more.
